This is a nice alternative to the traditional green bean casserole with canned french fried onions and canned soup. I tried it almost exactly as written, except I used frozen green bea. I think that using frozen or fresh green beans also improves the flavor over canned. Actually, I made one more substitution, based on what I had on hand: I used bread crumbs coated with butter instead of the crackers. I was surprised that even the small amount of sugar in the recipe added a hint of sweetness that was both subtle and interesting. As others have mentioned, the result is a bit thick, so I added a little of the water in which the green beans had been steamed to thin the white sauce (since it is made with sour cream rather than milk, the dominant flavor is still that of white sauce made with milk).
